KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Bode Miller knew as soon as he crossed the finish line, and probably long before that.

The American skier entered his fifth Olympics with high hopes. When he didn't live up to them in the men's downhill on Sunday, his disappointment was evident. Miller slumped over and put his hands on his knees, holding the pose for a few long moments as he contemplated a medal that slipped away.

The New Hampshire native was one of the pre-race favorites thanks to his superb performance in the training sessions last week. At the time of his finish, Miller was eighth of 22 skiers, far out of medal contention.

When Miller finished, television cameras panned to his wife, Morgan Beck. Her face dropped and the sunglasses she was wearing couldn't hide the heartache.

All is not lost yet, though: Miller still has two more chances to medal, in the Super-G and the super combined.
